I don’t give a shit that he is Asian.
He is absolutely right that we are rapidly drifting over the cliff with automation. Huey Long supported Universal Basic Income back during the Great Depression.
This is how we beat Blompf.
Yang has to talk about economic fairness as much as possible while stridently avoiding getting sidetracked into divisive social issues to unite Blue with Pink. In particular, he has to stress how his economic policies will help to foster social cohesion without coming across as threatening. This is simple enough to do just point out how you are stabilizing the White working class.
The Great Wall that divides Blue from Pink is the political correctness. Similarly, the Great Wall that divides Pink from Red is Universal Basic Income. The key to winning the presidency is exciting people in the Left-Authoritarian quadrant which is full of populists and moderates. The rest of the Democrats are alienating all of these people with extreme stances on social issues.
The rally this evening in DC was about economics and was completely free of the usual pandering to the woke crowd which was on point. That’s the whole reason so many people are interested in the Yang campaign but not in these other Democrats. The only exception is Tulsi who is liked for being strong on regime change wars and world peace but she is more of a one trick pony.
There are far more people who are Left-Authoritarian and Left-Libertarian than who are Right-Libertarian and Right-Authoritarian. If Yang can unite populists with progressives, then he can essentially reconstruct the old New Deal coalition and that’s when exciting things can really begin to happen. Don’t be stupid like these other Democrats and fight with and condemn White populists.
FDR had no problem at all working with those people. He won every Southern state four times. These people in the media don’t know shit about how to win elections here.
